Old Master Dong Ding Oolong(2020)

** 2020 Spring pick is almost sold out but the 2020 winter pick is fresh in stock. The winter pick has a little more roast and is oxidized a touch more than it its spring cousin.  

In 2019 we expanded the 'Old Master' series with this beautiful tea and it has quickly become a classic. Weather conditions were perfect this year for the spring and winter harvests in the Dong Ding region and this year's version of this tea is gorgeous. Produced by an 81-year-old tea master from the main village of Dong Ding, this complex tea gives rich creamy sweetness, sour fruit, roasted caramel and more as the leaves unfold. And it will only get better with age.

We have a limited amount of the spring 2020 tea left and we will offer it while supplies last!

One of the best oolongs I've ever had! Fantastic introduction to the world of dong ding!!

A Very Well-Balanced and Satisfying Oolong

One of the better dark oolongs I've had; I enjoyed it very much. My cap is off the the gent or lady who has brought this tea into the world to be enjoyed, I hope, by many.

My favourite tea

Roasted and sweet. Enough flavour to re-steep a few times. I keep coming back for more.

Not like the others

You can find many Dong Ding Oolongs on the market. But this one is really a master tea. Toasty and sweet.


Got a sample of this and that I bought 100g of this and the 2019 version. Sweet and toasty that I find cozy.
